Raising the Watch Hill Yacht Club
Published on August 29th, 2017
The Watch Hill Yacht Club in Westerly, RI wanted to increase the size of their facility, so they raised it 15 ft (3ft at deck level, and 12ft for a new ground floor) during a period of 9 months.
To follow the transformation, 3 to 4 cameras were firing for the entire period of September 2016 to June 2017. Two were on the Watch Hill docks (Kippany area) and two on the floating dock post (no dock there during the winter). The cameras were shooting four pictures per hour during daylight during the whole season.
During the actual raising period, the cameras were increased to fire every 10 seconds. Two additional cameras from the construction company (angle from the club entrance) were incorporated as well. The junior sailing and nighttime footage was shot at one frame per second and then sped up.
